Our Creative Space...


Busy in the urchin-factory...


After they are pinned and glued I put them on this piece of wood so that they can dry in a good way.


This piece of wood suffers a great deal in my hands. I not only use it for pieces to dry but also to hammer and drill. It is a piece of wood that we removed from our fireplace. I can't say that we upcycled it, more kind of a down cycle as it was a decorative piece. Do you have any nifty 'tools' that no one else, except you, sees value in?

You can see more workspaces at Kootoyoo's blog!

so interesting to see a little of how you make your work. love the wood with all it's marks and beatings!
i use the lids of takeaway food containers {and dips etc} to mix paints. the clear ones are especially good for colour work :)

Those are beautiful shots of work in progress, Star! Do you add them to the Uppercase Flickr group? I think you should! ;)
I have a few handmade tools that I use very often - made of tiny branches - they make the best tools.
